I found this series on health care in Australia that follows the life of several people in Australia as they strive to make health improvements.  The video series considers the challenges of achieving better health outcomes in Australia in spite of the health care system.  Watching this is optional, but there is a similar series in the US by Bill Moyers.  It could be interesting to compare the process.
